Master of Marriage and Family Therapy (MMFT)
Converse College’s Master of Marriage and Family Therapy is dedicated to training clinically-skilled and culturally-competent systemic marriage and family therapists who can practice effectively and ethically in a wide variety of settings.
Combining coursework with in-the-field experience, our program entails a total of 63 credit hours, including a 15-credit hour clinical practicum. We’ve designed our MMFT to give you the flexibility to attend either full-time or part-time. The full-time track allows you to complete the program within two years, attending year-round. The part-time track allows you to complete the program within three years. However, students have up to five years to complete the program. Courses are offered predominantly in the daytime, with some supervision and clinical hours scheduled in the evening.
The mission of Converse’s Master of Marriage and Family Therapy is to train clinically skilled and culturally competent systemic marriage and family therapists who can practice effectively and ethically in a wide variety of settings. We value diversity in our faculty, students, and the client population we serve.
Why Pursue your MMFT with Converse?
A defining aspect of Converse’s MMFT education is our partnership with EMERGE Family Therapy and Teaching Clinic. During your 15-month practicum with this COAMFTE-accredited teaching clinic, you’ll provide individual, couples and family therapy to clients who present a wide variety of diagnoses, relational problems, and life issues. In order to successfully complete the practicum, you’ll provide 500 hours of client contact, 250 of which will be relational with more than one member of the client system in the therapy session. You’ll also receive a minimum of 100 hours of supervision, 50 of which entail video/live supervision.
